|7:00 pm||Award-winning Norwegian music videos and short art-films|
|8:00 pm||Live music på renowned Norwegian singers Elise Vatsvaag and Hanne Kolstø|
|9:00 pm||Screening of the music documentary: An Island by Vincent Moon featuring Efterklang|
|Hanne Kolstø is spellbinding, and has a seldom talent to serve strong melodies. At her live performances people are amazed by her sounding like a whole orchestra herself. She uses her loopstation to compliment her songs by sampling her voice, guitar and other strange stuff she may have picked up on her way. She sounds like a mix of PJ Harvey and Beck.|
|On dreary days when everything seems blasé, Elise Vatsvaag’s endearing voice and playful lyrics are a pick-me-up. The smallframed Norwegian singer-songwriter has been compared to Ingrid Michaelson, Katie Melua and Colbie Caillat for her style and songwriting prowess, but her unique charm is the result of her innocent outlook on life and youthful zest.|
